About Serenity Knolls
Serenity Knolls provides residential treatment for addiction and co-occurring mental health conditions. Once a summer camp, their private campus offers shared bedrooms and outdoor activities. Serenity Knolls bases their treatment on the 12 Step recovery program, providing daily 12-Step meetings, 12 Step education, and connections to local 12-Step meetings after treatment. Their treatment program provides detox and residential treatment, with the option to extend residential treatment. Serenity Knolls notably offers a lifetime of aftercare after a 30-day stay.
Serenity Knolls begins treatment with thorough assessments and health evaluations. These initial assessments identify any family history of addiction or mental health conditions, physical health, and the treatment services that fit each client’s needs. Clients detox under the 24/7 care of Serenity Knolls’ medical doctor, nurses, and clinical technicians if needed. Clients may take prescribed comfort medications for withdrawal symptoms. Serenity Knolls’ Foundation Program provides 30 days of residential care, with daily group therapies, 12-Step meetings, and at least one weekly individual therapy session with a psychologist.
Serenity Knolls provides a variety of evidence-based therapies, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT), and equine therapy. They offer these therapies in group and individual settings. Clients meet daily with their counselor to check in, discuss goals and progress, and address any issues. Group therapy at Serenity Knolls includes process groups, psychoeducation groups, and gender-specific groups for men and women. Serenity Knolls also provides weekly family therapy when desired.
Serenity Knolls treats several co-occurring mental health conditions, including depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, and trauma disorders. Their psychiatrist can prescribe medications as needed for comprehensive treatment. After a 30-day stay at Serenity Knolls, clients and their families have access to a lifetime of aftercare. This includes weekly meetings, weekend programs, yearly activities, sobriety milestone celebrations, and celebrations around the holidays.
